Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I haven’t been on here, or posted In FOREVER. These rocks were in a creek bed in Devine TX. When I found a pocket There was a soft sometimes liquidy sometimes dryer Chock like substance. There was three colors. Red, orange, and almost yellow. Is this what the cave drawings were made with?!?! I don’t have good pictures of the chalk stuff right now bat can get them later.

Neat looking! 

I think they are sandstone concretions, rather than fossils, though.

Oh, I’m so dumb. For some reason I thought the “cave painting chalk”  (whatever it’s called, I should google it) Was something fossil related.

Not dumb at all. :) 

They may have been used by Native Americans for colors. 

In the northeast here, we get some concretions with a yellow, powdery substance in the center. If it gets wet, it becomes like clay/mud, and does stain clothes pretty well.
Some odd chemistry going on there for sure, but who's to say it wasn't used for adding color to items or faces.  :shrug:

Thanks! It sure was fun for my kid to make her own drawings with it. I thought it was a neat find and brought some home for the garden.
